Section 3: Place and Identity - The People, Place, and Space Reader

Anderson describes how race and class privilege infused the social production of space in late 19th-century Vancouver, Canada. Anderson’s work examines the variety of material and social practices through which both racialized space and constructed notions of racialized difference were produced and naturalized. Her research looks at how “Chinatowns” were fabricated in many cities by white Europeans and Anglo- Americans in the 19th century. She focuses her careful examination on Vancouver to detail how those in power delineated difference and limited people marked as other—in this case the Chinese population—through the spatializations of cultural norms and values.

This included labeling their cultural activities such as lodging, eating, gambling, and opium use as unsanitary or immoral, while refusing to extend sanitation services or employment to these communities.

What is Placemaking?

As both an overarching idea and a hands-on approach for improving a neighborhood, city, or region, Placemaking inspires people to collectively reimagine and reinvent public spaces as the heart of every community. Strengthening the connection between people and the places they share, Placemaking refers to a collaborative process by which we can shape our public realm in order to maximize shared value.

More than just promoting better urban design, Placemaking facilitates creative patterns of use, paying particular attention to the physical, cultural, and social identities that define a place and support its ongoing evolution. With community-based participation at its center, an effective Placemaking process capitalizes on a local community’s assets, inspiration, and potential, and it results in the creation of quality public spaces that contribute to people’s health, happiness, and well being.

Boyden This remarkable collection of papers bears witness to the breadth, depth and originality of Tony McMichael’s outstanding contribution to the health sciences over the past four decades. Appropriately, contributions range from discussions of the results of epidemiological studies on specific health issues, many of which McMichael worked on himself, to the importance of a systems approach to epidemiology, and even to some philosophical issues such as how important the future really is. Many papers refer to or focus on an area that was of special interest to McMichael over recent decades – the impacts of climate change on human health. Chapter 6. Love, loss and ‘going Home’: the intimate lives of Victorian settlers.

In May 1885, Arbella Winter Cooke received a letter from her son Sam, who was on an extensive honeymoon in Europe.

He and his wife, Alice, were having a wonderful time and liking Florence ‘very much’ but, Sam assured his mother, she need not fear that ‘it or any other place will charm us away from Victoria’. With a flourish, he added, ‘We are looking forward to our return Home.’ Samuel Winter Cooke (1847–1929) had been taught from early childhood that the great European cities on his tour were the centres of civilisation and culture. From the cosmopolitan city of Florence, however, he wrote to reassure his mother that all he longed for was held in the word ‘home’. Perils of place: identifying hotspots of health inequality.

It is a combination of characteristics that makes a place special and unique. Sense of place involves the human experience in a landscape, the local knowledge and folklore.

Recently, I was talking with a Pastor friend at a coffee shop about the importance of a “sense of place” in a globalizing world.

A Sense of Place in Globalization

This is particularly relevant in Washington, DC, where many of our friends are frequently absent, “off the map,” spread across the globe. We both came from divided countries (Korea and Ireland) and felt called to love our current residence, the city of Washington DC. While it left me with more questions than answers, it was a lively and energizing discussion. The Globalisation of Place and Space. Who's Jackson?

The Hopi have used the word koyaanisqatsi to describe conditions where life is disintegrating and out of balance. The Portugese use the word saudade to describe a feeling one has for a loved one who is absent or has disappeared. The North Baffin Inuit of the Arctic have applied the word, uggianaqtuq, ((pronounced OOG-gi-a-nak-took) is) to the climate and weather. The word means to behave unexpectedly or in an unfamiliar way and has connotations of a “friend acting strangely” or in an unpredictable way. The weather has become uggianaqtug for them. The Relevance of Place and Sense of Place to Sustainability. In response to sprawl and globalization that challenge integrity of ecosystems and diversity of cultures (i.e., environmental sustainability and cultural sustainability), place-based education has been invigorated as a means of "reclaiming the significance of the local in the global age" (Gruenewald & Smith, 2008, p. xiii).

Place-based teaching and learning are situated in places, which are localities imbued with meaning by human experience (Tuan, 1977). Places populate a cultural landscape that interpenetrates the physical landscape of landforms, water, biomes, and climate. The meanings that define places are diverse, signifying interplay of environment and culture in places from prehistory to the present. As they make meaning in places, people also form emotional attachments to them. Such attachments, especially if held by large numbers of people (for example, love of parks or wilderness areas) can be strong enough to influence the fate of these places. References. Let’s make Britain wild again and find ourselves in nature.

When the robin was voted the UK’s national bird last month, we chose to celebrate half of a broken relationship. The robin evolved to make use of wild boar, preying on the worms and insects exposed by their grubbing. It is to the boar what the oxpecker is to the Cape buffalo. But boar are mostly absent from the UK, so the robin’s survival depends on finding the next best thing: human gardeners. Semken10 pbe4contest. Home - Healthy Spaces & Places.
